Hi guys,

util-linux-2.22-rc1 is available, and I'm preparing for the final release.

A few binaries have been merged from other packages, so we need to
decide where we want to let them live

 * /bin/kill has been merged from the procps-ng project. Opinions?
 * /usr/bin/eject has been merged from the long-dead eject project. I
intend to drop the "eject" package and let util-linux provide this.
 * /bin/su has been merged from coreutils. This is going to get
dropped from there so we want this, unless I'm mistaken?
 * /sbin/sulogin, /usr/bin/last and /usr/bin/utmpdump have been merged
from sysvinit. This makes sense as we want those even when sysvinit is
not installed. Objections?
 * /bin/wdctl and /usr/bin/lslocks appear to be new.

I threw up some packages, if people want to take them for a spin (note
that there will be file conflicts):
